California Governor Newsom Vows ‘Sanctuary To All Who Seek It’ In Inauguration Speech
California’s new governor is promising the most populous state will be a “sanctuary to all who seek it” in a direct affront to President Donald Trump’s immigration policies.
Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom challenged the Trump administration repeatedly as he was sworn in to office Monday, particularly on immigration.
The former San Francisco mayor became the state’s 40th governor, succeeding the term-limited Jerry Brown.
“People’s lives, freedom, security, the water we drink, the air we breathe — they all hang in the balance,” Newsom, 51, told a crowd of hundreds packed into a tent outside the state Capitol.
Newsom pushes sweeping new California health-care plan to help illegal immigrants, prop up ObamaCare
Shortly after he took office on Monday, California’s Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom unearthed an unprecedented new health care agenda for his state, aimed at offering dramatically more benefits to illegal immigrants and protecting the embattled Affordable Care Act, which a federal judge recently struck down as unconstitutional.
The sweeping proposal appeared destined to push California — already one of the nation’s most liberal states — even further to the left, as progressive Democrats there won a veto-proof supermajority in the state legislature in November and control all statewide offices.
Trump’s border wall is standard practice in other parts of the world
President Trump’s commitment to building a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border continues to polarize both Congress and bilateral ties with our southern neighbor. While Democrats argue walls don’t work and even many Republicans question the $21.6 billion price tag, both concerns are overwrought. While critics say there is no utility in a border wall, countries around the globe have come to rely on them.
Consider the latest: On Jan. 7, Turkey announced it had completed half of a more than 100-mile wall along its border with Iran in terrain far more difficult than the Rio Grande Valley.
Migrants to Europe ‘need to go home’, says Czech prime minister

Matteo Salvini and Viktor Orbán to form anti-migration front

‘Today’s Europe needs a man like Viktor Orbán’
Czech Senator Jitka Chalánková has praised Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orbán for his uncompromising defence and protection of Christian culture and marriage as a bond between a man and a woman.
Jitka said, “I see Orbán as a positive figure because of his uncompromising defence of basic conservative value,” saying that every European leader should maintain such a position if we want to save our civilisation. “Today’s Europe needs a man like Orbán”.
